Thanks Prabhansh.

 

There is another dock: The Thinkpad OneLink Dock.  Is it compatible with the 1st generation of X1 Carbon?

No.  First gen does not have the port for that connector.

Thanks rich and Prabhansh.

 

If I use the ThinkPad USB 3.0 Dock (Part Number: 0A33970), I can connect two external monitors with VGA to the DVI-D (with adapter) and DVI-I connectors on the dock, right?

 

Secondly, with the above set-up, will I feel any sluggishness or slowness given the configuration of my X1 Carbon (1st generation) (with i5-3317, 4GB Ram, Intel HD Graphics)?

 

Lastly, I noticed that there is another dock from Lenovo: ThinkPad USB 3.0 Pro Dock (40A70045WW).  How does this compare to the USB3.0 Dock?

>I do not think so; it also depends upon what tasks are being performed by you on your system.

>Overview for ThinkPad USB 3.0 Basic Dock - It has less connectivity options as compared to USB 3.0 Pro Dock IMHO - Overview for ThinkPad USB 3.0 Pro Dock.


I hope this answer your queries.
